The expansion of telehealth services is enabling healthcare professionals to consult, diagnose, advise or perform tasks remotely, enabling them to treat more patients in their own homes or consult on cases on the other side of the world. The security of sensitive user information is critical to effective and efficient delivery of healthcare services. Artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology are identified as key drivers of emerging telehealth systems, enabling efficient delivery of telehealth services to billions of patients globally. Specifically, AI facilitates the processing and analysis of complex telehealth data, and blockchain technology offers decentralised, transparent, traceable, reliable, trustful, and provable security to telehealth systems.
This edited book reviews security and privacy issues in traditional telehealth systems and focuses on the technical considerations, potential opportunities and critical challenges currently inhibiting the adoption of AI and blockchain in telehealth systems. The book presents case studies which highlight critical lessons and considers the prospects and societal benefits of AI and blockchain, while providing suitable recommendations for designing future AI and blockchain-based telehealth systems.
Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Technology in Modern Telehealth Systems is suited to researchers and computer engineers working in healthcare delivery, telemedicine, cybersecurity, data science, AI/ML and those in related fields.Homepage
